Difference between engines

Now i am new to the Focus so bear in mind i am stupid and ask a lot of stupid questions. Yesterday i bout a 2005 ZX3 with a 2.0 Duratech in. I have been looking on the net about upgrading the air intake to a CAI, and even in your FAQTech section. The engine in the tech section with regards to the air intake looks totally different to my stock setp, the MAF sensor and throttle body seem to be at the back of the engine in the diagrams yet under my car hood its all at the front of my engine. When did Ford change the engine and where can i get a good air intake CAI for a 2005, and which parts are interchangable if any.

well the one u saw a picture of was the popular 2.0 zetec engine which was on the focus from 2000-mid 2003. Youll be able to find cai for ur focus...this is one that popped in my head.....http://www.focussport.com/coolflo.htm

Also welcome...and go and ask around in the duratec section on this thread, youll get the help u need there from people who have delt with your engine.

Yeah most of the common FAQ and general info threads deal with the Zetec, for parts specific to your engine check out the Duratec forums, and the link in my signature about Duratec mods. Your engine code for that site is D20, most, if not all, of the CAIs should fit on there just fine.
